We hope everyone had a safe “snow day” off on Tuesday this week! We continued small group and whole group checkout , and classes continued to visit for makerspace introductions and brainstorming sessions. We are serving an average of 20 students in independent groups a day in the makerspace (either working on January maker activities or their own classroom projects/creations). Mrs. McCulloch’s second grade class also worked to create Jackie Robinson and MLK monuments using the makerspace and materials.
Don’t forget that the third nine weeks Biblionasium challenge (read and log 1500 minutes by March 12th) is up and running!
We will continuously need donations for the makerspace as well! Think about donations similar to the STEM lab! Feel free to donate art supplies, pipe cleaners, popsicle sticks, plastic baggies, plastic grocery bags, rubber bands, straws, glue, cotton balls, string and plastic cups! If you can create something out of it, then consider donating it! Donations will be going on year-round, and you can drop off donations in the learning commons. Thank you in advance for your help with this!
